trap. government sources say stevens' personal security guard managed to climb out a window, perhaps this one where the bars were removed. the question is why stevens, left behind in the dark and the smoke, didn't follow. his body was pulled from that same window by a crowd hours later. the september 11 attack wasn't the first on the u.s. consulate. it had been bombed in june. on september 8, jamal busha'la, a commander of one of benghazi's most powerful militias, met with three americans-- one from the u.s. embassy-- to warn them about deteriorating security. >> ( translated ): benghazi's not safe. >> reporter: you told that to the americans? >> yeah, i tried to. >> pelley: liz palmer joins us from benghazi. liz, that rebel commander had pretty specific warnings. is there any indication the state department took them to heart? >> reporter: he said that his impression was -- his advice was sort of shrugged off. but that meeting, i should add, was called with the commanders to discuss the possibility of american private investment returning to benghazi, that they were even discussing

others escaped that night under armed escort to another house nearby rented by the u.s. government. the americans evacuated from the consulate about a mile away, would have come along this road and up to this gate thinking they were coming to a safe refuge, never dreaming that it, too, was about to come under attack from mortars aimed with pinpoint accuracy. so accurate that two more americans then died. security officials say the skill of that assault suggests a well-organized extremist group was responsible and one name tops the list-- ansar al-sharia, an armed radical group that had imposed rough islamic law in parts of benghazi until it was finally chased out of town last month by angry crowds. colonel hamid hassi, a senior libyan army officer told us he believes american intelligence knows exactly where they've gone. "the americans are watching ansar al-sharia all the time" he said "from the sky." in fact, the colonel showed us video of the drones he said were circling just last week. asked, though, if he expected a u.s. missile strike soon he said "that would be a mistake."

not until hours after the assault began. government sources point out lieutenant colonel wood was stationed in tripoli, he wasn't part of the assessment of security in benghazi. >> pelley: is the state department arguing, margaret that security was adequate in benghazi? >> well, they haven't finished their review. what we know is there were five diplomatic security agents present on the compound in benghazi on the night of the attack. three of them survived but they were injured. it still isn't clear how or why they became separated from the ambassador. and the state department is likely to be asked whether the u.s. should have stationed american personnel inside libya, a country in which the government doesn't have control of its own security. >> pelley: margaret, thank you. today mitt romney found himself in an unfamiliar place-- the lead. have a look. in a pew research center poll last month romney trailed president obama by eight points, 51% to 43%. but a pew poll taken after the presidential debate last week shows him ahead now by four points, 49% to 45%. that's outside the m
